Name of the textbook: Assessment procedures for counselors and helping professionals
 
 
The following table provides deviation IQ (standard) scores, scaled scores, and T scores obtained as part of the assessment. The following tests were included as part of the evaluation:
 
Behavior Assessment System for Children-2nd Edition (BASC-2; Parent, Teacher, and Self-Report Forms)
Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF; Parent, Teacher, and Self-Report Forms)
Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration (VMI)
California Verbal Learning Task for Children (CVLT-C)
Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System (D-KEFS)
Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (MASC)
Reynold’s Adolescent Depression Scale-2nd Edition (RAD)
Test of Everyday Attention for Children (TEACH)
Wechsler Individual Achievement Test-2nd Edition, Abbreviated (WIAT-II)
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-4th Edition (WISC)
 
The WISC-IV and WIAT-II have a mean of 100 and a SD of 15. The individual subscales of the WISC-IV have a mean of 10 and a SD of 3, and so do the TEACH, D-KEFS, and VMI. All other measures utilize T-scores with a mean of 50 and a SD of 10.
 

Use the formula on p. 71 of the text (Assessment procedures for counselors and helping professionals), calculate z-scores for all of the following results, and add the z-scores to the table:
